Have your air conditioning bills been higher than last year? If so, then your air conditioner might have lost efficiency. In today’s article, Watson Heating & Air, the leading HVAC maintenance company in our local area, discusses the reasons behind poor air conditioner performance and gives tips to help improve the efficiency of your cooling system.
Causes of Poor Air Conditioner Efficiency
Air conditioning systems lose efficiency for a variety of reasons. Your system might have dirty evaporator coils, for instance. When these coils get too dirty, then their ability to transfer heat is compromised. Your air conditioning system might also have an inadequate level of refrigerant. If the refrigerant charge is too low, then your system will be unable to operate at peak efficiency. Your home could have leaking air ducts, as well. Fortunately, these problems are all easily fixed by the qualified professionals at Watson Heating & Air.
Tips on Improving the Performance of Your Air Conditioner
The best way to improve the performance of your air conditioning system is to schedule regular professional maintenance. Air conditioning systems are complex, so they need regular maintenance in order to function at peak efficiency. Professional maintenance will boost your system’s performance and energy efficiency, improve your home’s indoor air quality and help reduce your energy bills.
You should also get your air ducts inspected. A professional will be able to confirm if your air ducts are properly sized for your home. They can also seal and insulate your ducts, greatly improving the efficiency and effectiveness of your air conditioning system.
